Technical debt has to be dealt with on a regular basis to have a healthy product and development team.

The impacts of technical debt include emotional drain on engineers and slowing down development and can adversely affect your hiring ability and retention.

But really, what is technical debt? Can we measure it? How do we reduce it, and when?

James Smith, the CEO of Bugsnag, joins the show to talk about technical debt and all of these questions.
